The far right-wing blog ‘The Right Stuff’ creator has quit over the revelation that his wife is Jewish it was reported in the Jerusalem Post.
‘Mike Enoch’, was doxxed (the leaking of personal details online) as a certain Mike Peinovich, a website developer from New York. Peinovich was also co-host on the infamous Neo-Nazi podcast “The Daily Shoah” on which he regularly talked about killing Jews, deporting Muslims, people of African descent and other Neo-Nazi rhetoric.
Enoch (name invented in homage to Enoch Powell), has long been considered one of the three most influential figures in the “alt-right” (fascist) movement along with Daily Stormer creator Andrew Anglin and Richard Spencer – he of the infamous Nazi salute celebration of Trumps election win.
Peinovich’s personal details were released were earlier in the week by rival website 8chan, briefly working alongside antifascist activists
‘Enoch’ admitted that the information released about him was correct in a message in left on a private forum on the website The Right Stuff (released by the Salon).
“As I am sure you all know, I was doxxed and an ill advised attempt to fool the media about my identity led me to not talk to you people and to try to simply ride it out by being silent. This was irresponsible and a disservice to all of you. Yes my wife is who they say she is, I won’t even bother denying it, I won’t bother making excuses. If this makes you want to leave the movement, or to have nothing to do with TRS, then I understand. Don’t lie for me. Don’t try to defend me to those attacking me. Don’t jeopardize your own reputation by defending things that you don’t think you can. I could try to explain my whole life for the last ten years to you but what difference at this point would it make. Life isn’t perfect.”
He later resigned in disgrace from both the podcast and The Right Stuff.
